As some of you may know, I recently suffered a miscarriage. It was hard for me to wrap my mind around it, but as the days go on, it becomes a little easier to deal with; not forget, because I will never forget that I had life in my womb for 2 and a half months.
A couple weeks after my D&C procedure, I had a follow-up visit with the OBGYN who did my surgery. Basically asking what my plans were and how I was feeling and if everything has been alright post-op. Everything was pretty normal. Very minimal bleeding and pain, emotions like a rollercoaster. I literally cried when Shrek 3 came on TV after seeing all of their babies. I was sad before that but that just pushed me over the top. Now that my hormones are pretty much back to normal, I don’t have episodes like that anymore. I still get sad of course, but life must go on since I have a child that I need to be mentally, emotionally, and physically there for.
My doctor said my husband and I can try to conceive again after my first menstrual cycle, but I am not sure we will try that soon. Ultimately it is up to my husband since he has to be on board again as well. I would love to try soon and not wait around long. We’re getting older and we have no idea how long it will take to conceive another. First pregnancy took us 4 tries and second pregnancy happened the 2nd try.
But there are some things you should do before trying to conceive. Some of which are a no-brainer, but I’d like to stress the importance of these.
